VOA: The U.S. military says it is still holding almost 4,000 Iranian rebel fighters from the People's Mujahedeen or Mujahedeen-e Khalq in Iraq.
This report denies the reports indicating that MKO has activities in border areas.
The commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, General Ricardo Sanchez, said Thursday that fighters have been disarmed and are under guard by coalition forces.
General Sanchez was responding to a report in the Washington Post newspaper that said the U.S. State Department suspected Pentagon officials of allowing the Iranian opposition group to continue operating from Iraq.
This denial comes when Washington Post revealed according to informed sources in pentagon that: "Mojahedin enjoy high freedom." Despite the report of Washington Post, MKO's TV channel broadcast propaganda into Iran freely and with the support of Pentagon. This proves that Sanchez is lying and also reveals Pentagon's plans about this group.
